said by duped :Sounds like you bought a stolen vehicle.
Can anyone help me out here!!
I purchased a car from Gumtree. After several days of back and forth with this person, we finally decided to buy it. We signed oall relevant paperwork and away we went.
Unbeknown to myself, Dept of Transport sent a letter to the person we bought it off to say he was not the owner of the car but in fact the person he bought it off didn't change the papers over!! Now I'm left with a car that I dont own! I have contacted this guy to change the papers over and to do the right thing. At first he was willing to help but now he refuses to even answer my calls or txt.
I only found this out because I was curious as to why my papers hadnt arrive so I rang them.
My dilemma is.... Dept of Transport wont help me ( keep telling me to find the guy who owned it yet wont give the real owners name etc... Spoke to the Police in regards to this and same damn answer!!
My vehicle will de register on June 31st 2012 and I will have no car for myself and 3 kids...Very disheartened!!!!
No money to buy another....
Any one out there that knows what I can do?
